Food Pairings for Tenuta Caparzo Brunello di Montalcino
Purple juju fruits and a hint of herbaceousness lead into a very easy and soft palate that is smooth with blue and black berries. Fresh and even a bit bright.
Candied dark berry flavors and a little smokey and herbal. The finish was a bit vinegary for me.
Solid notes of grilled meat over firm black cherry. Brooding and muscular. More lean black cherry on the palate with some smoke and leather. Grippy, fine-grained tannins and a bit disjointed at this stage, but with balanced components. Finishes with nice length and lingering notes of sweet leather and sandalwood.
External Reviews for Tenuta Caparzo Brunello di Montalcino
Caparzo’s 2008 Brunello di Montalcino is impressive. It boasts serious depth, nuance and complexity. Smoke, licorice, spices, black cherries and plums all develop in the glass, supported by firm, beautifully integrated tannins. This is a solid Brunello with plenty of upside for the next decade, if not longer. Anticipated maturity: 2015–2028.
Fresh cherry and raspberry flavors highlight this juicy red, with accents of underbrush and tobacco lending nuance, followed by a spicy finish. The dense tannins suggest this is built for the long haul. Best from 2016 through 2030.
A tight, linear style, elegant and supported by firm, dusty tannins. Cherry, molasses and tobacco notes are savory, while the chewy texture persists through the finish. Best from 2014 through 2025.
A Sangiovese Grosso wine from Tuscany in Italy. 2006 Caparzo Brunello di Montalcino la Casa 750ml
The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino Vigna La Casa boasts a deep dark core of fruit. Ripe black cherries tar leather and licorice are some of the nuances that emerge from this resonant expressive Brunello. In 2006 La Casa shows plenty of muscle but without abandoning the house s medium-bodied style. Anise and menthol reappear on the creamy generous close. This is a beautiful deceptively medium-bodied Brunello from Caparzo. In particular I admire the way the wine turns minerally on the finish. The Vigna La Casa spent 36 months in Slavonian and French oak casks but of a slightly smaller size than those used for the straight Brunello. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2026. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
Auge: Dunkle granatrote Robe; Nase: Wunderschöne Aromenpalette (schwarze Kirschen, Holunder, Veilchen), mit markanten Terroirnoten; Gaumen: Ein Charakterwein, vollmundig, tanninreich, ausdrucksstark und konzentriert; Finale: Elegant, ausgewogen - ein Wein mit Charakter!
Dunkles Rubinrot. Würziges, vielschichtiges Bouquet. Finessenreicher, klassischer Brunello mit reichen Aromen nach dunklen Beeren. Abgerundete Tannine und eine feine Säure machen diesen Wein zu einem idealen Essensbegleiter. Dunkle Früchte, dicht, schöne Tannine, kräftig und lang im Abgang.
Color: Ruby red, tending to garnet red with ageing. Bouquet: Penetrating, very full and varied, reminiscent of wild berries. Flavor: Dry, warm, full-bodied, harmonious, delicate and austere at the same time, persistent. Food Combinations: Roasts, grilled, spit-roast or braised meats, game, ripe cheeses.
